For Women

Because women's self-protection needs can be unique, we are offering a special page of books that may be of interest. As usual, we offer nothing we haven't read or whose authors we actually trust for thoughtful and comprehensive information. Though some of the tapes and books seem more male-oriented, the basic fundamentals and principles explained are especially applicable to women's self-defense.

On this page we offer a short description of the items. By clicking on the picture or title, you can get a more in-depth information on the product. The Order Now link will take you directly to check out.

This video will teach you how to recognize those signs so you can take nonviolent steps to prevent the criminal from attacking. And if the situation does turn violent, you will learn how to articulate to the police and courts important details about the situation  -- and why you reacted the way you did.
